Over Thinking

Cathy’s guest is the author of the book Women Who Think Too Much – How to Break Free of Overthinking and Reclaim Your Life. Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema is on the faculty in the psychology dept. at Yale. She says that women are more likely than men to fall into overthinking and remain stuck there. Even minor events can send many into distress. For example, the boss makes a sarcastic remark to you and you spend days worrying about what he or she meant; a friend makes a comment about your weight and you get mired in thoughts about how you look and how insensitive the friend is; your spouse doesn’t kiss you goodnight enthusiastically so you’re up all night wondering what this means for your marriage.
